CFPEo (HTRpC) Cell Line:

Approximately 14% of all newly diagnosed cancers are lung cancers that mainly occur in older people, with an average patient age being around 70 years old, according to the American Cancer Society (ACS). The CFPEo cell line was established using human trachea epithelium cells (also known as HTEpC Cell Line). Human Trachea Epithelium Cells (HTEpC) are responsible for keeping the airways clean and providing proper lubrication for air passage. HTEpC are usually impacted in the event of a respiratory disorder and hence make for appropriate investigative and toxicological research tools. These types of cells in the airways are responsible for maintaining humidity as well as cleaning the respiratory tract. In addition to being an important target for drugs, toxins, and carcinogens, CFPEo cells are beneficial cell culture models in biomedical research for treatments of asthma, viral infection, fibrotic lung disease, lung cancer, and cystic fibrosis. Consequently, CFPEo are effective for investigating the function and pathology of the respiratory system. They are also used in drug uptake experiments, toxicological and wound healing research, oncology, and cell differentiation. Investigations include studying the regulation of intracellular pH, the stimulant effect of IL-1b on airway epithelial cell growth, and how human rhinovirus infection affects upregulation, or hastening, of ICAM-1 expression on epithelial cells. Altogen Biosystems provides the CFPEo (HTRpC) transfection reagent kit for human trachea epithelium cells that yields high transfection efficiency.

The CFPEo cell line is a human epithelial cell line that was derived from the lungs of a patient with cystic fibrosis. These cells are commonly used in research to study the pathophysiology of cystic fibrosis and to test potential therapies for the disease. CFPEo cells have been shown to retain many of the characteristics of normal lung epithelial cells, such as the ability to form tight junctions and express cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR), the protein that is mutated in cystic fibrosis. Researchers use CFPEo cells to investigate the mechanisms underlying CFTR dysfunction in cystic fibrosis, as well as to test the efficacy of potential drugs that may restore CFTR function. The CFPEo cell line is a valuable tool in the study of cystic fibrosis and has contributed to advances in our understanding of the disease and the development of new treatments.


CFPEo HTRpC Transfection Reagent

Figure 1. Cyclophilin B silencing efficiency was determined by qRT-PCR in the CFPEO cells transfected by Cyclophilin B siRNA or non-silencing siRNA control following the recommended transfection protocol. Cyclophilin mRNA expression levels were measured 48 hours post-transfection. 18S rRNA levels were used to normalize the Cyclophilin B data. Values are normalized to untreated sample. Data are presented as means ± SD (n=6).


Figure 2. Protein expression of Cyclophilin B in CFPEo cells. DNA plasmid expressing Cyclophilin B or siRNA targeting Cyclophilin B were transfected into CFPEo cells following Altogen Biosystems transfection protocol. At 72 hours post-transfection the cells were analyzed by Western Blot for protein expression levels (normalized by total protein, 10 µg of total protein loaded per each well). Untreated cells used as a negative control.
